“This year’s IWD theme, Embrace Equity, is a big inspiration for me as a designer. Going beyond the concept of equality, where everybody gets the same thing, equity focus on giving everyone what they need to be successful. I hope we can be part of the driving force in achieving and embracing equity for women through design.”
-Queenie, Designer at Cafuné
The History of Briefcases
In the past, briefcases were designed for professional men who carried important documents around. In fact, its name came about as lawyers used to carry ‘briefs’ (court documents) in them. The signature look - brown or black leather, narrow body outlined by straight sides, and a boxy or rectangular frame - symbolised professionalism, success and power.
Work Bags for Modern Women
The Stance Bag, Cafuné’s most signature style, is our version of ‘briefcase’ designed with modern women in mind. Balancing both aesthetics and functionality, it has a timeless silhouette that goes with any outfit, and design details that fit into her day-to-day life. The Stance Bag represented the progress women have made in this world in achieving independence, and our continuous pursuit of equity.
